Final report

Thank you for supporting three successful fundraisers in 2020/2021. We really appreciate the generosity of all donors who helped to raise € 50,000 for our local conservation partners, € 30,000 for the Biosphere Expeditions survival appeal and over € 5,000 to make sure that all our local support staff and helpers (and their immediate family) are vaccinated. An honour roll of all donors is below. 

THE THREE FUNDRAISERS

The coronavirus epidemic was declared a pandemic in March 2020. From then on, no more expeditions ran. Almost immediately, in April 2020, we started to run a fundraiser that was all about getting our local conservation partners through the crisis. This ran until the end of 2020 and raised €50,000. An overview of what this money achieved is on our blog.

In February 2021 we announced that there would be no expeditions in that year either. This meant that there was to be next to no income for us for close to two years. With this, our survival was at stake, so we started our own survival appeal, which ran until October 2021. Once again many generous donors (many of them repeat donors from the coronavirus fundraiser - see the honour roll below) stepped up and we were able to raise € 30,000 to ensure our survival through the crisis. 

In October/November 2021 we ran our third fundraiser to make sure that all our local support staff and helpers (and their immediate family) are vaccinated. This raised over € 5,000.

"It is thanks to the people below that we were able to help our partners and ourselves weather the storm thus far. All of us at Biosphere Expeditions cannot thank these generous donors enough. It is our pleasure to honour them publicly via this honour roll." Dr Matthias Hammer, Executive Director.
